It's Snoopy!

Snoopy is an extroverted beagle with a Walter Mitty complex. He is a virtuoso at every endeavor- at least in his daydreams atop his doghouse. He regards hismaster, Charlie Brown, as "that round-headed kid" who brings him his supper dish. He is fearless though prudently cautious about "the cat next door." He never speaks- that would be one human trait too many- but he manages to convey everything necessary in facial expressions and thought balloons. A
one-man show with superior intelligence and vivid imagination, he has created
such multiple personalities as: Joe Cool, World War I Flying Ace, Literary Ace,
Flashbeagle, Vulture, Foreign Legionnaire, etc. Taken
from the official Snoopy site

I loved the Peanuts crew when I was younger and when I saw that HMstamps
had Peanuts Stamps I HAD to get some! and even my Monty is a beagle so you see its ingrained!

The challenge over on
Cute Card Thursday the Thursday just gone was 'Planes, trains and automobiles' and I got Snoopy already for it but then between life and the Splitcoastampers Virtual Stamp Night I wasn't able to finish him, so when I saw this weeks challenge sketch on Poetic Artistry I was sold....!

I started by stamping Snoopy and Woodstock on some smooth white cardstock, and colouring them in with Copic markers. Since the image was so bright and cheerful I went for some vibrant patterned cardstock from the Shake It Up Collection by Rubbersoul. To make sure that the image was not overwhelmed by the pattern cardstock, I matted and layered with some red cardstock and then mounted onto some beautiful green Bazzill card. I added a bit of bling in the form of 3 gems on the left hand side, and I scattered some prima blooms that had been glittered.

Thanks for checking out my blog today!
